Dear June Husbands,
On September 12, 2013 I sent an FOI request that ran:
1. What is the total amount collected by Lambeth Council for the sale of ‘shortlife’ housing between 2011 and the present?
How much money has been subtracted for:
- Payments to central government?
- Fees for lawyers?
- Fees to vacant property managers?
- Fees for evictions (bailiffs, police etc)?
- Fees to contractors?
- Fees to auctioneers?
- Admin fees?
- Overtime or other bonuses paid to ‘shortlife’ housing staff at Lambeth?
- Any other expenses?
2. Furthermore what budgets or projects have the monies raised been allocated for and what amounts in each case?
On October 10, I received a reply from you (below) that gave me the answer to one part of the first question that £40, 713, 000 had been raised, you said that part of my enquiry had been mislaid but that it would be answered by 21 October.
It is now nearly month after this already delayed date and neither the rest of question 1 or question 2 have been answered. I’m at a loss as to understand why and it inevitably makes me very curious as to what has happened and the reasons it has taken so long.
